If you ask any man, they will probably tell you that managing their relationship with their wife is hard. Now imagine having to manage relationships with five wives.
While Brady Williams seems to make it looks easy … it may not be as easy as it looks. Not only does he have five wives, he also has 24 children to tend to. Needless to say, this lifestyle could easily become overwhelming.
The wives, who refer to themselves as “sister wives,” share a special bond, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have their moments of jealousy.
During a recent interview with Radar Online, Rosemary, Brady’s third wife, opened up about her relationship with Brady and explained how she feels that she has been taken advantage of for 19 years.
It's hard to compartmentalize those feelings for all of us. That's one of the aspects of polygamy that is the hardest. #myfivewives

It all started when Rosemary and Brady were supposed to have a private night together, but were interrupted by Paulie, his first wife. “For 19 years I’ve noticed Paulie having extra time with Brady,” Rosemary said. “And it just feels to me like it is directional. It’s my time not so much her time.”
Rosemary also admitted that she feels like her relationship with Brady may be in jeopardy. “I’m sure for Brady it’s exhausting trying to figure out how to manage all of us,” she said. “To his credit he will never side with a wife against another wife but that also creates a problem if the wife is being taken advantage of, which I feel like I have for the past 19 years.”
Rosemary isn’t the only wife that feels that she isn’t receiving fair treatment. During Sunday’s episode, Robyn, Brady’s second wife, and Rosemary had a “safe talk” with Brady where Robyn explained that she didn’t feel that she received as good of an anniversary date as the other wives.
Robyn explained, through tears, to Brady that she felt that the only reason she got a ring was because Paulie got one. She was obviously hurt, and was wanting support from her husband and fellow wives.
Time with sisterwivesis special because those bonds are important to keep strong. #myfivewives
